Get Hired Apprenticeship and Jobs Fair at Derby College Group

Derby College Group (DCG) is holding an apprenticeship and jobs fair at the Roundhouse Technical and Professional Skills college in Pride Park on Wednesday June 26 to showcase the opportunities available to people at local businesses and organisations.

Information about a wide range of full, part time and apprenticeship job opportunities will be available at the event as well as advice and guidance about job search and CV writing skills.

The event is particularly aimed at young people finishing their GCSEs this summer – although vacancies are open to applicants of all ages – including those looking to change or find a career.

Several employers will be attending the event with their full, part time and apprenticeship vacancies.

Potential candidates will be able to get help to apply for vacancies at the event, speak to employers directly, attend CV and interview skills workshops and book a maths and English screening session – which is mandatory to apply for an apprenticeship and are valid for six months.

There are a wide range of apprenticeship roles currently being advertised through Derby College.

These include: Engineering and Manufacturing, Equine, IT, Hairdressing, Administration, Dental Nursing, Teaching Assistants, Horticulture, Motor Vehicle, Catering and Hospitality, Childcare and Surveying.

DCG Deputy Principal April Hayhurst said: “There is always a large number of apprenticeship opportunities available at this time of year as employers recognise that young people in particular are at a crossroads in their lives – finishing school and college study programmes.

“Our Get Hired event is therefore the ideal opportunity for young people and indeed people of all ages to find out more about apprenticeship opportunities as well as other full and part time job vacancies in this area.

“Apprenticeships are the opportunity to earn while they learn – combining valuable work experience with nationally recognised qualifications.

“And businesses benefit from harnessing the energy and enthusiasm of young people, teaching them the skills they need to grow their business and ensuring that they do not face future skills gaps with an ageing workforce.

“As part of our support to businesses – we provide a recruitment service to help employers find the young people who will benefit their organisations and support candidates to ensure they have the skills they need to be successful in their search for jobs.”
